President Jabs 9th Circuit

At today's Presidential Turkey Pardoning ceremony,
"The president said he would issue two turkeys, Peas and Carrots, a presidential pardon in celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday Thursday. While the origins of the annual ceremony are unclear, the White House has made the turkey pardoning an official tradition since the George H. W. Bush administration. “Unfortunately, I can’t guarantee that your pardons won’t be enjoined by the Ninth Circuit,” Trump said. “Always happens. They’re guaranteed.” "

According to Wednesday reports from the Associated Press, Trump called Tigar an “Obama judge,” and critiqued the ruling, saying , Every case that gets filed in the 9th Circuit, we get beaten. And then we end up having to go to the Supreme Court, like the travel ban, and we won.”
Chief Justice John Roberts issued a rare statement Wednesday rebuking Trump’s comments. Roberts said the U.S. doesn’t have “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.”
